Peace and Pandemonium

Sunday, August 24, 2008



I openly admit it. I cant get this beautiful face out of my head. His "liquid topaz eyes" are smoldering all over the place!! His "marble skin" is cold and hard and when he steps out into the sun...celestial being. Except of course for the fact that he's a vampire and has no soul and will quite possibly be damned to Hell if he were to ever die. Oh Edward I love you so, maybe more than Bella. Well, maybe not, but still A LOT!! More than I should. This actor is named Robert Pattinson and he also played Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter. I always knew I liked him.

It's seriously funny that I'm even writing this post because for 2 years I happily passed on reading these books. I felt that they would be immature and trite. I always kind of grimaced whenever anyone would start gushing over them because it all just seemed so overly ridiculous. I decided to read them so that I could judge them according to my own opinions. To my slight dismay and complete and total embarrassment, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THESE BOOKS! The writing is not great in my opinion. Stephenie Meyers tends to use a lot of the same words and phrases to describe her story. It gets a little old. For example, "liquid topaz eyes", "cold marble skin", Bella only ever seems to "mutter" or "murmur" her words. It got a little boring in that regard but the story itself is addicting. The characters are awesome. The books are fast paced and easy to read and I just love them. That's all there is to it.

I read the first three books in 3 weeks and I am about 140 pages into Breaking Dawn. I'm torn. I want to read it slowly to draw out the time I have left with Edward. On the other hand I want to finish it already so that I can have my life back!! Either way, life's about to get so good.

Draw it out. Limit the amount of time you read. PLEASE don't inhale this book. There is much to take in, and it is much quicker paced than the other books. And it's the first time you will read about Edward and Bella again. Savor it. I BEG YOU.

That being said, I LOVE THAT YOU'VE BEEN CAPTIVATED LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!!! It's true - the writing isn't the most creative. But the story/characters drive the books and enchant us all.
I love this picture of him - I've seen other pics and been a little worried that he doesn't look like the Edward that I pictured, but this one actually does him justice. :)
I haven't read these books yet and until a few weeks ago I had never heard of them. But wherever I go in the blogosphere everyone is talking about them. They have such a following that I do plan on seeing for myself what they're all about. I keep meaning to pick up the first book & start.
Kiera and Edward sittin' in a tree K-I-S-S-I-N-G!
You are so funny girl! I say hurry up and keep reading so we can talk about all the amazing things that happened!
He was pretty cute as Cedric Diggory too. Haven't read them yet. My sister has, and she is a big fan of Anne Rice and other vampire novels, so if she likes it it must not be too bad. But like you, I sometimes find it ridiculous to see the most non-vampire-fantasy type people raving about it.
oh my goodness, I feel the exact same way! I am sad to say, I read them all way too fast, think I may start over! Glad to hear you are on the vampire is so great.

love, Sarah
I loved this series. It was so much fun to gobble up and read. The intense feelings, the incredible romance. We all need an Edward in our lives.
